New microarchitecture, new level of performance

Piledriver microarchitecture, a tuned-up Bulldozer, has finally reached the flagship AMD FX processors (the new FX series processors are codenamed as Vishera) for improved performance and better energy-efficiency. Up to eight “Piledriver” cores ensure unrivaled multitasking and pure core performance. The AMD Turbo Core technology pushes your core frequencies to the most when you need it most. To top it off, like all other AMD’s Black Edition processors, the new AMD FX 8-core Vishera processor black edition is unlocked for fabulous overclocking* capability.  Unrivaled performance is not the only trick AMD has up their sleeve. Vishera processors are at a reasonable price point. (*AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking even when overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software.)

  • newegg New Piledriver microarchitecture Piledriver microarchitecture is the second generation of AMD Bulldozer microarchitecture. The internal core structure has been modified for higher frequencies even without any changes in the manufacturing process. Piledriver has a more precise branch predictor and a larger instruction window with ISA extensions FMA3 and F16C. The execution units acquired an enhanced scheduler and learned to process individual instructions faster, such as integer and floating-point division. And Piledriver microarchitecture delivers higher power efficiency compared with Bulldozer microarchitecture.
  • newegg Unlocked AMD FX processor with 8 Piledriver cores The native 8-core desktop processor delivers unrivaled multitasking and pure core performance with the new Piledriver microarchitecture. 32 nanometer die shrink was designed to reduce leakage for improved efficiency, increased clock rate headroom and better thermals. The AMD unlocked technology offers more headroom for your overclocking (AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking even when overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software.).
  • newegg AMD Turbo technology The AMD FX Processors come equipped with AMD Turbo CORE Technology, a performance boosting technology that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.
  • newegg Amazing instruction capabilities Like Bulldozer, Piledriver has some amazing instruction capabilities. Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) increase parallelism tailored for scientific and 3D applications that use heavy floating point calculations. Floating Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate improves throughput and performance on many vector functions (integer and floating point). Advanced Encryption Standard noticeably increases performance on the latest encryption applications like TrueCrypt and benchmarks like PCMark.
  • newegg AMD Hypertransport technology HyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link which helps reduce the number of buses in a system thus reducing system bottlenecks and enabling today's faster microprocessors to use system memory more efficiently in high-end multiprocessor systems.
  • newegg Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology AMD FX Vishera Processor features a high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller that supports faster and low voltage memories and provides new Pre-Fetcher improvements and direct communications to each core in Dual-Core module (APIC registers in each core).

5 out of 5 eggsIf I had to do it over again...

Pros: This CPU is powerful, fast, and reliable. It represents an outstanding value, and will happily compete against any Intel CPU that is priced similarly. An excellent processor for productivity, gaming, or both. You simply can't buy a better CPU without spending a lot more money.

Cons: 125 watts TDP shows this chip uses plenty of power and generates some heat. Cooling fan included with retail version of FX-8350 can definitely make some noise. Investing a little extra for an aftermarket cooler is a good idea.

Other Thoughts: I've been running my FX-8350 processor for well over a year now, and I've been delighted with the performance. I recently replaced the retail heat sink and fan with an aftermarket model from Silverstone, which improved the average temperatures and fan noise considerably. I didn't fully appreciate just how great of a CPU the FX-8350 has been, until I realized that, if I had to do it all over again, I'd buy the exact same CPU again today. It's really a terrific performance bargain!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Gaming

Pros: Setup for a gaming rig and works great. Overclocked easily with Corsair H110i and never got over 36C.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsI am a BETTER gamer now!!! :)

Pros: I thought I just sucked at Black Ops I and II. Turns out that with my old CPU (AMD Phenom II X4 980) that I was lagging behind all the rich kids whose daddy's bought them I7 processors, and they're computers were just faster than mine.

Last night, however, I came in 2nd or 3rd in every game. With my Noctua NH-D14 and overclocked to a safe 4.2 ONLY by bumping the multiplier up to 22.5 :)

I NEVER broke 32C :) (Without OC, it was 17C, but that speaks to the cooler and not this CPU)

Cons: IOt doesn't give me ****, but neither does my GF anymore...


Other Thoughts: I waited and waited and hemmed and hawed over this. Just buy it already.

I got this for $179 with coupon.

5 out of 5 eggsStock Fan Sounds Like a Leaf Blower

Pros: Fast

Cons: The stock fan sounds like a leaf blower.

Other Thoughts: This review is just a heads up to anyone purchasing this CPU - Buy an aftermarket CPU cooler. I chose the Cooler aster 212 evo because why not. Seems like a popular choice.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite the beast.

Pros: Before this I was running an Athlon II x3 440. I decided to upgrade so I got a new mobo and this monster and WOW is there a difference. I was having issues with certain games and that is no longer an issue paired with my r9 270.

Cons: Stock fan runs quite loud and also a little hot. Idle is about 30-35c and full load reaches nearly 65c at times. I recommend getting an aftermarket cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsthe last of the 125w AM3+

Pros: i runs this at stock speeds, no turbo, on water cool setup (h60) at 1.29 volts stable. max temp i see the socket get under heavy load is 40C, use it in a gaming rig that also does heavy multitask and audio editing. had the FX-6300 but this is CPU does better with RAM speed and way faster and stays around the same temp (6300 under load did 38C on same setup)

Cons: depending on Mobo, and cooler setup, can be a pain to make it stable and cool if you don't want to go below 4ghz. but that's obvious. sometimes when you do over clock, the temp sensor can go crazy showing a max temp blip of 255C. does it in every 990/970 MoBo i try....

Other Thoughts: have this CPU in a GigaByte 990FXA-UD3 with 8 gigs 1866 G skill ram and twin 550 Ti's. i run 3 screens, no hicups. you can Bog this CPU down with single threaded stuff, but when it multitasks it performs...

1 out of 5 eggsReply to explanation of low fps

Pros: None

Cons: Everything

Other Thoughts: In response to you telling me my low fps was because of my motherboard, I have a sabertooth 2.0, enough said. And to your genius thoughts about my power supply, I'm running a Tagan BZ900. That's a $270 power supply sir, the best series of power supplies on the market. Any other genius comments? If I need a better motherboard than a sabertooth, and a better power supply than the best on the market, then why would you buy this chip? My new intel 4770k is incredible. Same exact setup, I have the intel sabertooth now. Overclocked to 4.7ghz on air, stock cooler. GG dude, this chip is trash. I like how you linked how you were in the navy? I respect that but I built my first computer when I was 12. Doesn't take much knowledge.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst AMD Processor Impressed

Pros: processor working to spec, easy to install, replaced stock cooler with CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm due to some reviews about this CPU running hot. No problems running hot with the water cooler IDLE 34-36c under load video gaming for hours 42-45c is the highest i have seen, hopefully will stay this way come summer time. will update..... handled every stress test i threw at it

Cons: wish they would not call it an 8-core processor, it is a quad core hyper threaded to 8 so 4 physical 8 logical
so i deducted an egg not Neweggs fault how AMD chose to promote it

5 out of 5 eggslow fps? blue screens? read this!

Pros: good price, sure to be good performance

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: If you are experiencing low fps, blue screens, and other generally abnormal computer reactions after upgrading to this cpu you had better check your motherboard's manufacturer web page for cpu support lists.
WHY!? because this thing requires a certain amount of juice, your motherboard may not be equipped to handle.
If you have checked that, consider this: Do you have a gaming video card installed?
if yes then : How many watts is my power supply?
If your answer to this question is less than 650 watts then you should seriously consider upgrading to 750 watts+ depending on your setup.

If this doesn't cure your symptoms you may need to consider trying another motherboard.
I just ordered mine, I was fully aware that if it doesn't work in my current rig that I will order a more beefy motherboard too. Rather than blame the CPU or AMD...
